Our Melbourne Artistic Director, Sarah Benson, from Oscar Oscar Salons in Doncaster recently worked with Redken to create a beach-babe swimwear shoot for Elle US magazine!

"Looks were soft and natural, hairstyling was fluid and undone with minimal products used to retain a natural beach-babe look. The focus was on creating natural texture. Working with Redken hair director Dhav Naidu for Elle US magazine was an amazing opportunity." Sarah Benson

For this seasons hottest hair colour trends you need to know the lingo… it’s all about balayage, ombré and micro-foiling. We talk to Michael Kelly, one of Australia’s top colourists and the head colourist of our Oscar Oscar Salon in Sydney, to get the low-down on this years hottest hair colouring techniques:

BALAYAGE: Balayage is a french term for freehand colouring. I love using this technique to create sun-kissed hair with individual style. This is best suited to people that want a really natural beach babe look, like our favourite bikini girl Lara Bingle!

OMBRÉ: Ombre is two-toned colouring and gives the hair a dip-dyed effect. This looks great with chocolate brown hair and caramel dip-dyed ends. Ombré colouring can be used for any colour variations such as blonde hair with pink ends, or even a beautiful blend of red and copper tones. This is an edgy colour look so you can be creative with your hair colour selection!

MICRO-FOILING: Micro-foiling is a technique for ultra-fine precision foiling which creates a seamless shimmer of colour throughout the hair. This is the is ultimate colouring technique for achieving an expensive looking blonde.

Our talented Melbourne stylist, Sarah Benson, recently styled the glamorous models for the Westfield
Doncaster Elle Magazine SS13 masterclass,
the look was beautiful cascading curls perfect for the festive season!

Sarah shares her tips and tricks on how to recreate this summer hairstyle at home using the Kérastase Couture Styling collection and ghd stylers.


Step 1. Prep damp hair with Kérastase Couture Styling Mouse Bouffant and Spray á Porter through the mid-
lengths and ends.

Step 2. Using a ghd air hairdryer and ghd paddle brush focus on creating lift at the roots to create body and

Step 3. Next section the hair into 1 inch sections and use the ghd eclipse styler to create curls. This is done by
clamping the styler at the root and vertically directing the styler down to create an elongated curl. Alternate
the direction of each curl to create a more natural finish.

Step 4. Finish the look using the Kérastase Couture Styling Laque Couture micro-mist hairspray for light hold
and the Kerastase Couture Styling Gloss Appeal instant shine top coat spray for ultra-glossy shine.

Scherri Biggs is a model, television presenter, charity ambassador, former Miss Universe Australia and also
one of our glamorous clients at Oscar Oscar Salons in Chadstone.

I look forward to my appointment every time at Oscar Oscar Salons. I feel like they really listen to what you
need or want from your hair, and they offer some great creative styling suggestions. The care and attention
given each appointment is outstanding. It really is a little magic moment for myself. The Kérastase products
they use are amazing and have changed the way I think about hair care
Scherri-Lee Biggs


We spoke with Scherri’s colourist and our Salon Partner, Nathan Armagnacq to learn how to create her ultra-
glamorous blonde style.

Scherri has beautiful clear skin, so we complimented this with a Redken Chromatics creamy blonde base and
lifted her overall colour with ultra-fine golden highlights using our precision micro-foiling technique for
seamless colour

The golden highlights are essential so that Scherri doesn’t look washed-out and to also ensure that her hair is
as shiny as possible, this is because golden tones are great for reflecting light and therefore maximising shine.
We finished Scherri’s colour services with a Redken Shades EQ demi-glaze, which is a clear gloss for even
more shine!
” explains Nathan.


Nathan also explains the importance of regular salon appointments and at-home hair care, “To ensure her
colour remains in top condition Scherri will need a colour appointment every 6 weeks to keep her look fresh
and glamorous.

Scherri also uses Kérastase products for at-home hair care between salon appointments including Kérastase
Nutri-Thermique shampoo for dry hair, Kérastase Elixir Ultime Masque and the Kérastase Ciment Thermique
Topseal, which is a leave-in reconstructing milk for heat protection.”

One of the Gold Coast’s best hairdressers, Jessica Longhurst, from Oscar Oscar Salons, recently styled two
gorgeous models for a fashion shoot to promote the Palazzo Versace’s decadent Melbourne Cup events!

This was a very Gatsby’s inspired photoshoot, so I created an elegant faux bob to compliment the vintage
styling using Kérastase Couture Styling products
.” Jessica Longhurst

How to recreate the look:

Step 1: Apply Kérastase Spray á Porter to dry hair and remove excess moisture with a ghd air hairdryer

Step 2: Using the ghd eclipse styler and curls to the hair, starting from the nape of the neck. Curl the hair in
the same direction the whole way around the head.

Step 3: Pull the hair back in to a low, loose ponytail at the nape of the neck. Keep the fringe and front of the
hair out.

Step 4: To create the bob hide the excess length of the ponytail by rolling the ponytail under and tucking it
away at the base of the hairline. Secure with bobby pins on each side.

Step 5: Dress the front sections of hair by draping pieces of hair over the hidden ponytail and secure with
fringe pins, allowing soft pieces of hair to fall naturally to frame the face. To finish spay with a medium hold
spray such as Kérastase Laque Couture or for a more textured look use Kérastase Spray á Porter.


Be in prime position this Melbourne Cup at Palazzo Versace’s Il Barocco Restaurant. The event also features
the live race action on the big screens, fashions on the Field parade by Marina Mirage, Best Hat and Best
Dressed awards, sweeps and Live entertainment by Cassidy Wilson’s Velvet Martini in Le Jardin after the race.
Tickets $165 per person. For more information about the Palazzo Versace Melbourne Cup events click here.

Jessica Green


COLOUR – “Using Redken Chromatics I created a variation of brunette shades to compliment Jessica’s skin
and eye colour. Depth of colour was created by using dark ink lowlights, which contrasted with the warmth of
caramel highlights and balayage. The quality of the Redken colour range also creates a high-gloss shin
Cherry Dolan, Colourist.

STYLING: “Jessica has really beautiful thick hair, however we needed to integrate long layers into her hair cut
to create movement for a more glamorous look. For styling Jessica looks amazing with Victoria Secret style hair,
so we curled her hair using the ghd eclipse styler and then brushed out the curls for a softer, more
modern finish

Our favourite Melbourne blogger, Phoebe Montague also known as Lady Melbourne
recently visited our Westfield Southland location for an androgynous photoshoot with our stylist John Stuttered and photos by
Honeyrock Photography.

We spoke to John about how to recreate these looks using the latest Kérastase Couture Styling collection.


For look one I focused on creating a couture up-style. Hair was prepped with Kérastase Lift Vertige on the
roots and Mousse Bouffante on the midlengths and ends. Hair was then blowdried with a paddle brush. Once
dry I then separated the back section and placed into a tight low pony tail, and with the remaining front section
I curled the hair using the ghd eclipse styler.

Next gently brushed over the curls to form finger waves and pinned to create a couture version of a classic up-
style. The look was finished with a light spray of Kérastase Gloss Appeal for shine, and Kérastase Laque
Couture for hold.
” Explains John.


For look 2 I created a severe side part to give Phoebe a more masculine style. To do this the hair was placed
in a low pony tail and lightly sprayed with water before applying the Kérastase Touché Finale, a supershine
polishing serum which created a wet look. I then sprayed the pony tail with Kérastase Spray á Porter and then
blowdried the product in on a low setting to create a messy beachy affect. I finished the style with the
Kérastase Laque Couture micro-mist hairspray for hold
.” John said.

For the second hair look for the Trend Gala show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney our stylist
Paloma Rose Garcia was inspired by 1960s fashion.

For the second look we’ve still kept the texture story but pulled the hair back into a low, ruffled up, 1960′s
style ponytail. It has a great mod feel to it. Strong, clean but with body
,” explains Paloma Rose Garcia,
Redken Hair Director


1. Prepare the hair using Redken Guts 10 foam through the lengths and ends, then apply Redken Rootful
root lifting spray at the roots for grip, hold and workability.
Blast-dry the hair with a hairdryer.

2. Use a comb to create a deep side part. Using the arch of your eyebrow as a guide,
pull the hair back to just past the crown.

3. Next create extreme airy volume and texture in the lengths by applying Redken Signature Looks Ruffle
Up 14
volume building gel to the midlengths and ends and quickly start teasing random sections.

4. Pull the lengths back into a ponytail and tie at the nape.
Spray with Redken Quick Dry 18 to hold the style in place.

Our talented session stylist, Paloma Rose Garcia, was the Redken Hair Director for the recent Trend Gala
show for the opening of the four day Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney.

“The first look has a real Grecian goddess, or angelic feel to it. The style is quite relaxed and whimsical which
gives softness to the overall look
” describes Paloma Rose Garcia.


1. Prepare the hair using Redken Guts 10 foam through the lengths and ends, then apply Redken Rootful
root lifting spray at the roots. This will help make the hair more workable and provide some hold.

2. Rub a small amount of Redken Signature Looks Loose Endings 09 cream in your palms and work it

through the lengths to enhance natural texture, shine and definition. Rough dry hair with the hairdryer.

3. Using a large size curling iron, curl sections of hair from the ear down. For this look you want to keep the
style flat at the roots.

4. At the crown, under the top lengths, backcomb the hair at the roots slightly to create a cushion for extra
volume and shape.

5. Next take the front side sections, gently pull back the lengths and fold into a mini french roll. Secure by
pinning through the middle.

6. Help relax the curls by loosening them with your fingers or applying heat. Finish with Redken Fashion
Work 12
for a light, natural looking hold.
